Try both and see what you fall in love with. If you fall in love with neither, do neither.

Learn both if you can. Or learn one of them and also learn to accept the truth that you decided to learn only one so there would be no regret :D

First depends of what you draw, is it a painting or graphic design and what kind of “coding” is it, html coding or cms programming.

My impression is that there is much of them who draw for free but there isn’t much of them who code for free.

In the end everyone will decide following own affinities.

So we have Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Gabe Newell and Mark Zuckerberg on one side and some guy named Auren Hoffman on the other. Well that’s a tough decision to make… ;)

In all seriousness, I would encourage everyone to do both – the more You challenge yourself , the better the outcome. Add an everyday workout to the pile and You’re golden. Too many people do neither and I think that’s the real problem both sides are trying to address here.

Coding is about bug fixing/testing/frustration. In the WP era I do think designing is more important.
